 I have a few days until I test, and my husband and I were discussing how to tell our family about (potential) baby #3. We wanted to do something fun. Anyone have any cute ideas?

We did the same! My first trimester ended near my sons birthday so we sent out party invites, along with Halloween pics and the last pic had my son in a big brother shirt:) my mom didn't get it at first but my dad and grandma did. Everyone called a few days later and loved the announcement :) Congrats!!!

We shared this picture. I can't find the edited one we used, but it said "Our family is going to grow by 2 feet!" I gave it to DH first and then we shared on facebook. For the few friends or family not on facebook we just told them.

Got most of my family together for breakfast and told them. Then a few days later we told his family. And once we found out the sex of the baby we posted pics of her ultrasound with the title of the photo album being our baby girl. That's how the rest of our family found out.

I didn't do anything special when we told our parent. I txt my mother told her about me being prego because my granny just had just got out hospital and In had rerange the house to make it easy for granny to get around. We my bf mom we take her out to eat on valentine's day and he ask her what she think about having another grandchild. Then she look at me said your pregnant and I was just speakless. He just answer the question mom. Then she wouldn't mind having a granddraughter. then to answer ur question mom yes she is pregnant. She was smiling from ear to ear and claping.

I was boring and just called them both times. I wanted to announce it at a big family party but never got the chance. I was going to have my oldest daughter where a big sister t-shirt and see how long it took people to notice.
